・The lasting is a very important process to determine the design, and that’s why everyone is very concentrated on his/her work.
・After lasting the internal leather, we apply the rubber cement to make it adhere completely.

・ After that, we pull back the leather of the upper side, attach the core made by thin leather and proceed again with the lasting.
・ In case we made it smaller than the standard size, we apply some thin paper to adjust it
(in general we use toe core adapted to the standard position).

・After having scraped the base, we attach the shank (for men’s shoes)
・Then we attach the cork on the shank and mold it.
・We cut out the outsole (the part that touches the ground) and attach it with the rubber cement.

・It’s fun to choose the heel that best suits our original design!

・During the lessons, students learn also how to make beading for the wearing opening and other parts. .
(This is important in order to create something that matches our personal image of the shoe, rather than using a ready-made article)
